Swansea City have agreed to pay Wrexham £150,000 in compensation for defender Neil Taylor.

The 21-year-old Welsh international joined the Championship club in the summer after his contract expired at the Racecourse.

But as the left-back is under 24, Wrexham were owed compensation.

The two clubs originally failed to agree a fee, but did so just before Thursday's professional footballers compensation committee tribunal.

In addition to the £150,000 fee, the Swans will also pay 10% of any future transfer fee profit.

Meanwhile, the Swans are also due to put their compensation case with Premier League Manchester City before a tribunal next week over 17-year-old Emyr Huws who left for Eastlands over two years ago after coming through the junior ranks at the Liberty Stadium.
